SafeMark's nonproprietary naming services range from a regulatory consult to prioritizing a list of name candidates for USAN or INN submission. 

  • Identify and evaluate the proper USAN or INN stem for your compound based on your compound's investigative or clinical brochure.

  • Create new stem options with rationale for your novel compound.

  • Create and evaluate nonproprietary names for your compound according to the USAN and INN Guidelines.

  • Prioritize a set of names to submit to the United States Adopted Name (USAN) Council or WHO’s International Nonproprietary Name (INN).

  • Create a USAN cover letter or assist with the INN "additional comments" for your list of name candidates.

  • Review Agency correspondence sent to the sponsor from USAN or INN regarding your nonproprietary name which may include evaluating an alternative name provided to you from the Regulatory Agency.



We offer services that are affordable for all size pharmaceutical and biotech companies that are modular in nature – so you only pay for what you need.
